The 334s certainly aren't my favourite, but the 318s are. What I wouldn't give for a model of a modern-day 318!

C'mon Hornby!
just when you thought you were getting there!
Please up your game!
a little risk and see what happens
(when this is successful I will want a %)
please try something a little different
I don't really care any more as long as you make some changed
an LNER A4, some decent regional 0-6-0s and 4-4-0s and tanks (you know how successful lots of your innacurate ex -Triang ones have been)
please
just try a couple and see what happens
(we are so thirsty)
and some proper coaches to go with them
if we know what you mean we will buy to keep you producing.
The high detail matters a bit less to me than the impression, so something like railroad quality would do for many (though I know that is your old/poor stock graveyard, for cheap young beginners)
you will not only make money but also make us all smile and buy!

Haven't been any inaccurate Tri-ang 0-6-0's or 4-4-0's in the main range for many a year Rocketman. All have been Hornby items, the schools, D49, compound, J83 and 1978 onwards jinty are all Hornby models. The only Tri-ang 0-6-0's in the range are Duck, a much modified ex-midland 3F as James and Devious Diseasel in the thomas range.

Hornby should in my vastly superior opinion, retool and bring out loads more 'Terriers!' :D :D

(before Bachmann, create an even more detailed and stunning version in 00, that would probably not look out of place on a rivet counters layout! :D )

Well some new 060's would be handy, but would Terriers appeal to those outside the southern region? No offence Terrier.

None taken at all Paul, i already find you pretty offensive, so more on top doesn't bother me to be honest. :wink:

The Terriers' similar Highland Railway predecessors (Lochgorm etc) might appeal!
I think they would be looking at widening rather than narrowing their market.

It be nice to see them do something that nobody else has done or get a GWR KING on the stocklist again!

I'd so love a line up of GWR Express Engines!!

Manor (Bachmann need to retool)
Hall
Castle the new models look amazing!
King.... WHere is the main express loco? get it retooled and in sound Hornby!

I know Hornby have done the grange but I've yet to own one so I can't comment on those

on the GWR theme..

it would be nice to see Hornby or Bachmann produce some of the eight coupled tank loco's (72XX/5205/4200), as nice panniers, prarie and autotanks are, it would be nice to have some bigger tank engines to put on heavy freights

Cheers

How about some Metropolis-style buildings like these?

This is the Kato N gauge building but some OO versions from Hornby would be nice! ;).

the terriers in my opinion are detailed enough at the moment, maybe bring out an A1 condition one to create 672 fenchurch, 82 boxhill and 54 waddon.

wouldnt mind the saint and star sometime soon :D
